Mission Statement


SHE wants to share GodÂ’s love and hope with the lost and lonely in practical and ongoing ways. We will meet the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of the people we work with and endeavour to bring about transformational development.

Description


SHE ( Self Help and Empowerment) was started in 2006 by co-founders Mark and Sharon Biddell. SHE works with women and children marginalized and at risk with the majority working in the bars and commercial sex industry of Patong. Many of these young women travel to Patong from the poorer rural areas of Thailand to seek employment to provide income for their families. SHE is helping women at risk by operating a centre which offers a safe environment, vocational training, counselling, rehabilitation and sustainable employment opportunities. A place to learn new skills, form relationships and experience the grace of God and above all, a realization of their own worth and value.

Statement of our Christian Faith • Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God, who died for our sins and arose from the dead.

(2 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:105) • Every person has worth as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) • Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Saviour and Lord. (John 3:16) • Those accepting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized into Him.(Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38) • The Church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to evangelize the lost and edify the saved.
